latino president of the united states has been born. now, he could be, or she could be, an infant right now, or in second grade, or in high school, or maybe even in the united states senate. but it's clear from looking at the united states and the changes in our demography that latinos will continue to play a larger role in national dialogue. if you look at the specifics, in 2004, 7.6 million latinos are said to have voted in the united states. that's according to research that's been done at the national level. in 2008 in a presidential election, that jumped up to 9.7 million. now there are estimates that in this coming election in november, that the number could go all the way up to as high as 12 million. and that number is only going to grow, so i think it makes it all the more relevant to examine the life of somebody like marco rubio. in some respects i kind of think of him a little bit as almost a test case for how the american population relates to a latino politician. that was reason enough for me to write a book about him. because in the same way that you look at the reasons why

and the united states, the governor of libya, how pained they are about this is much more reflective of the sentiment toward the united states. than heavily armed mob sters. >> that's the case in libya. but not the case in egypt. president obama was asked about the relationship we jipt on wednesday and this is what he said. >> i don't think that we would consider them an ally, but we don't consider them an enemy. they're a new government trying to find its way. >> the united states has sent billions of dollars of u.s. taxpayer money to egypt over the last few decades and by definition as you know, according to the state department, egypt is a major non-nato ally of the united states. why would president obama say that egypt is not an ally. >> the president has been very clear. everybody has understand, that relationship remains the same and the president wasn't signaling any change in the nature of our relationship. obviously, the president had a conversation with president morsi. it's the responsibility of the egyptian government, of as a host, to protect facilities including our ow
. >> the cruel irony here is that the united states is well-regarded in libya. and there's a moderate government in place. and this is clearly the actions of an isolated and very small but very vicious terrorist group. and so we've got to protect ourselves from those groups. and we've got to go after them. >> reporter: and, wolf, as i said, we're expecting momentarily a briefing background here at the state department. there are a lot of details. everyone that we talk to says that it was a very, very complex almost chaotic situation. fighting on the outside. fire on the inside. and so we expect to have more details as we go along. >> and so far we've only been told the names of chris stephens and sean smith. the other two they have not released their names yet, is that right? >> yes. they were security officials. >> not u.s. marines though? >> reporter: no. we understand were not marines. they were security personnel. >> let us know what happens at this background briefing you're about to get. and you'll update our viewers. standby for that. jill dougherty. let's go to nic robertson now in londo
